they pass the test

What is the Aila test?

The Aila Test is just a lens for analyzing and criticizing Native women in media ( similar to the Bechdel Test but with it’s own set of rules ) based on the ongoing and overused tropes used for Native characters.

To pass the Aila Test, the story in question must abide by these rules:

1. An Indigenous / Aboriginal woman MUST be the main character…

2. Who  DOES NOT fall in love with a white man…

3. And DOES NOT end up raped or murdered at any point in the story.

You’d be surprised how many do not pass this test, but you’d probably be pleasantly surprised with the ones that do!

(And I love your articles, especially the Myths about Pocahontas where you cited the sacred Mattaponi oral history! Thanks for following this blog!)

Yesterday my aunt playfully asked "no one is perfect, right?" And my cousin said "Well, men." And I just thought "ExcuSE YOU?!" And then he kept talking like "Men can play football, men can drive cars". And I was just "And Women can't?!" I really wanted to kick his butt down the stairs. The best thing is, that he lost his drivers license some years ago for driving to fast and I never even got a ticket. So who can't drive, bitch?! Sorry, I just thought you'd enjoy a story of a stupid man...

I’m gonna learn to drive, pass my test, and pay insurance on a car just so I can personally drive straight through the wall of his house

Gosh I feel like I keep asking you questions but would a sigil for passing a road test be a request sigil or would it have to be purchased from your shop?

I understand this is a little late, and you made your own sigil instead (It looks great btw, I totally agree with the car symbolism making it stronger)

But I figured I’d fill your request anyway just in case you still need it or somebody else needs it

Also no, if you’re using the symbol magically and you’re not asking for something ridiculously complex, you don’t need to buy it from my shop

So husband’s last name is on the list of Sephardic Jewish people who fled the inquisition

If he fills out the paperwork and passes a Spanish test then he can claim dual citizenship in Spain and Israel

I mean, with how the political climate has been going, it’s nice to have options right? My crippled ass precludes us from moving out of country so.

I mean it has to be done now if we’re gonna do it, but it’s an interesting thing to think about.

Space Australian Medicine

Despite the best efforts of everyone involved, something truly nasty escaped Earth. They call it giardia, a microscopic organism that their Planetary Protection Officer called “pretty dumb” and “not too bad, really, a week of digestive upset and then it’s over.”

Yes, Earth has a Planetary Protection Officer. They have a Planetary Protection Office, and have had one since they were sending probes around their own solar system. Doctor Ma-et had found it a bit silly, like a child concerned about the cleanliness of their toys, until she learned that the job of the Planetary Protection Office had always been protecting other worlds from Earth.

capmeme: eight quotes [2/8]

↳ "Is this a test?" 

“Oh! I know how to perfectly measure a students intelligence! Let’s design a test, say 3 hours and 45 minutes long, it will have to start pretty early let’s say 7:45 am. Okay, so they can write an essay in 25 minutes. How about 3 seperate math sections spread throughout, a total of 70 minutes. Yeah, that sounds good, no notes obviously, and the score they get will highly influence colleges. Hmm did we forget anything…? Oh yeah, it’s gotta cost $55, $100 if they register less than a month in advance, that way it will be really difficult to retake if for SOME reason it doesn’t go perfectly.” -the college board probably

The shot we’ll be making:

Now here are the video tutorials in order.






sometimes, you don’t magically improve how you want to. sometimes, instead of getting an a in that class you worked really hard in, you get a c. but going from a fail to a c is so much progress in itself, and you should be proud of yourself for that. glorifying getting a’s is great and all, but we all need to see more posts glorifying real progress, whatever that looks like. you had failed that test completely but now you scraped a pass? progress! you got a d in that class last year and now it’s gone up to a c or a b? progress! a’s are wonderful and all, but sometimes you’ve got to cherish the other, less typically celebrated moments. no one goes from a fail to a 100 overnight. give yourself some credit.
